Finally found a TSPP!
Can someone tell me what two posts are missing here?
Maybe take a picture of your machine.
Many thanks.

Am I also missing a post here?

Congrats on the game! Looks like you are missing a couple of posts and brackets. Should be easy enough to replace.

You are missing the 1-way wire gates at the bumpers and the shooter lane. and a few posts

#3805 1 year ago

Ahhh I see. Thank you so much.

Any idea where to get this ramp from?

I have searched the web but it seems out of stock everywhere.

Are these the standard one groove posts I'm missing or are they star posts?
On the photos it looks like the post is wider at the base? Maybe it's just the lighting making it look wider at the base.

Here are a couple more pics. Sorry, but i didn’t take the glass off and explore further... but it almost looks like the post you pictured above with another larger diameter post slid over the bottom.

Thank you very much.
Strange the manual does not show that sort of post. I am sure you are right someone has slipped an additional rubber sleeve over that lower end of the post. Kind of a mod to protect the post probably.

Thats how data east and early stern posts are. They are a standard post with two different rubbers on them.

If you search IPDB for TSPP and download a manual, every single part is listed.

The post has a thick sleeve at the bottom and a ring on the top. They will come in replacement rubber kits.

Any recommendations on who to buy a 5.0 eprom/sound/display romset from? I throught John Wart Jr, but it seems he's not an option anymore...

If I'm upgrading from 4.0, do I only need Display and CPU? Or also sound? Thanks!

Let me check when I get home. I may have an unused one still that I bought for my machine but didn't end up needing.

#3816 1 year ago

Wanted to give a shout out to sparky - I have several of his mods on my TSPP and recently picked up his TV mod (which is great btw) second hand and needed a couple small pieces to help mount it (which I think I misplaced). Sparky mailed out the extra pieces (no charge) despite the fact that I purchased the mod from another member. Great service.

How’s the machine treating you? Sparky is a great guy. I purchased the treehouse mod from another Pinsider and I ran into issues with it rubbing against CBGs arm and he offered to refund the purchase.

By the way, the purple plastic rod that was in the box of spare parts attached to the lamp flasher cover. It broke off shortly after installing it and I thought it looked better that way. sparky, possibly consider producing the lamp mod without the rod attachment. I spoke to someone on Reddit who ran into the same problem and liked it better too.

#3818 1 year ago

Considering picking one of these up, but haven't played but maybe a game or two on one. Are games times on this pretty long? My friend said he sold his because he tired of the long ball times.

They can be, yes.

You can adjust the difficulty levels.

I just updated from 2.0 to 5.0 all you need is the Display and CPU ROM. I bought mine from Matt's Basement here on Pinside. $20 + shipping total.

I'm always happy to help with any of my mods that might not fit or work correctly. The lamp stand is three pieces that snap together. If anyone likes it without the other pieces, the pieces can be taken apart. None of them are glued.

TIL! Thanks for sharing that. I thought previously that it was all glued together.

#3825 1 year ago

Got a very pristine HUO tspp today, bought from the first owner via their tech, goody bag and manual still stapled to the inside of the cab. No wear anywhere.

B1771588-0FEC-41B7-8158-2E93CF43361F (resized).jpeg

Looked like it had been in storage for some time as it came with a few spiders inside A quick clean and its fairly perfect. Power plant decals are peeling off but that will be easily fixed.

I didn't see a key post about anything you should add to the machine to protect it. ie. common wear areas etc.

I assume I should add cliffys, mylar to the drops, mylar to the slings. Anything else?

Is there a way to stop the ball jumping the right out lane rail?

I would put a protector on the shooter lane as the paint tends to wear off. I’ve owned my game since 2003 and it’s the only protector I have on the game.

#3827 1 year ago

Mylar in the shooter lane and a cliffy for the Itchy and Scratchy hole is pretty much all that’s needed

#3828 1 year ago

Great score on that mint TSPP. I recommend the full cliffy set, especially the garage ramp. I put some mylar on the ball drops as well.

Quoted from D-Gottlieb:

Agreed!! I bought everything available for the game as far as Cliffy's. I too added mylar to the drops but I did one better and also added the Switch slot protectors. You can never have to much protection!! LoL

#3830 1 year ago

My ball has never jumped out of the lane rail. Maybe make sure it’s levelled?

#3831 1 year ago

My ball constantly jumps out of the monorail. Ive tried adjusting it, the screw, the machine is level, but sometimes it still flies out and goes right down the right outlane. i just live with it now

Bend the wireform just a little where it falls out.

There is something misaligned. It should never do that.

#3834 1 year ago

Mine does it sometimes too, tried everything.

#3835 1 year ago

Yea ive tried. I just cant figure it out. I read all the troubleshooting stuff I could find on here. I thought i had it figured out, then it jumped out again. lol.

#3836 1 year ago
Quoted from catboxer:

Same here, no ball has ever fallen from my monorail. What is the level setting on your playfield? Mine is set to factory default using the built-in level.

#3837 1 year ago

I have had 6 TSPP's and 3 of them did this. They would fall off where the straight monorail rail met the wireform. I added a couple of washers here(and that took care of all of them)-

Capture (resized).JPG
#3838 1 year ago

Mine would shoot off occasionally, but only when i had the playfield angle up past 7deg to make it difficult and fast. I lowered it a bit, but i might try the washer trick and raise it back up.

I pitch mine around 8-9... never had one jump with the washers.

#3841 1 year ago

Mine’s pretty steep as well. The best is when it flies into the shooter lane and you can put it back into play. Guess I need more washers or a 3d printed guardrail.

All my games are pitched super steep. Always have been. I really enjoy a faster paced game
My Sinbad is pitched steep, cleared, and has a powerball in it....lol

That is really steep and would probably cause balls to come off the rail. I don't know how you guys do it? I guess I'm old with slow reflexes because the default slope is more than fast enough for me lol

Are you using 2x4’s or other supports under the back legs like some of the Papa games?

4.5" levelers in the back, all the way in, in the front.
